The Hunger Games

giveaway

Haven’t read the books, but I am excited to see the movie!

Mostly because of Josh Hutcherson. Can’t believe this is the same little boy…

…who we hung out with all summer while shooting “Little Manhattan” – the first film directed by our cousins (the same ones who are making “The Man’s Guide to Love”)

I know from being immersed in the blog world that food is a big part of the story (with an entire cookbook devoted to recipes inspired by the trilogy). Wish I could say my hunger’s been awakened…

…but alas, my stomach’s playing games with me today.

Apple + Mint Truffle Fudge + Decaf Green Tea with Lemon…

…most random breakfast ever?

At least I have a giveaway for you! Remember the Flor de Sal I posted about on Thursday? One U.S. Winner will receive the same fancy tin that I did. Just leave a comment saying what you’re hungry for. Maybe it’ll jog my appetite…

Sadly, the shoot we were having the pre-production meeting for at The Brentwood Country Mart had to be postponed last-minute.

But at least we had a lovely lunch!

Four of us shared two desserts…

…you could really taste the tea in the pudding!

Speaking of which, my cup of Chamomile (from LaMill) was amazing…

…as was ALL the food – thanks Teresa for treating us!

Didn’t have much of an appetite the rest of the day – nestled up with some frozen pineapple n grapes right before bed…
